1st Short story on Transformation – by Kanak Jain Demonitization was a shock and nightmare for many and so it was for Somnath ( name changed ) . Som Nath is into Sari Whole sale business in Kolkata . The business as usual was 50-50 , means half in cheques and half in cash with no or very less accounting for the cash part . This system had many disadvantages like – clarity , keeping records , accountability and many more . But one advantage was tax saving .
Somnath still wanted to change and that urge to make things automatic and systematic was desperate but for years it was not possible . All attempts were result less and lead to no direction.
After demonitization it was just a decision to make everything automated was taken . There was no way left . And Somnath and his Brother Devnath ( name changed )decided to change . It took only 36 hrs and they changed the whole system . New bill books came into picture , new software came into existence and things became fully automatic . Previous records were also systematised . Now everything is in record and these brothers are fully relaxed . They say if the tax. Payment was Rs 20 lakh last year ,it will be Rs 80 Lakh from this year . But something which they were keen to do for last 4-6 years was done in 36 hrs after 8th November 2016 .
This is a story of a small scale business entrepreneurs who really transformed ( not changed ) the way they did business . This is an inspiration to all of us . We all can learn from Somnath and Devnath the ability to change and bring transformation . The business is destined to reach new hight and take a new flight .
